A food truck, ice cream, and a chance to see heavy machinery up close creates an atmosphere that’s fun for the whole family

BREWER – Cianbro, which was recently named one of the Best Places to Work in Maine, is hosting a walk-in hiring event at its facility at 517 South Main Street in Brewer from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 18, for a long-term, historic project. However, in true Cianbro fashion, the company is putting people and family at the forefront of this event. Not only will prospective team members be able to get an on-the-spot interview, they can also bring their family for some fun, with a food truck, ice cream, and some of Cianbro’s heavy machinery on site to create a festive and enjoyable atmosphere. 

Cianbro, along with its trade partners, has begun working on a multi-year project at its module facility in Brewer. For the project, Cianbro is seeking a variety of construction professionals with a wide range of skills and abilities. While this event is intended to find people interested in joining Cianbro, it’s also a great opportunity to connect with the community.

“We know that there are a lot of skilled and dedicated craft professionals here in the Bangor-Brewer area looking for work, but beyond that, we want people to have fun,” says Joanna Cohen, Cianbro’s infrastructure HR manager. “We also want people to know more about this project, as it will significantly benefit the region!”
